CloudMounter is an innovative RaiDrive alternative for Mac that synchronizes with all the biggest cloud storage providers like Amazon S3, Dropbox, Google Drive, and more. CloudMounter mounts all these drives as if they were local disks, letting users navigate cloud storage as a local drive on Windows or macOS. So all you have to do is drag and drop files to seamlessly upload or download them between the cloud and your local device.
If you need to juggle between multiple cloud storage accounts from the same provider, don’t worry: this cloud manager allows you to stay logged into more than one account at the same time, making it perfect for switching files between professional and personal cloud accounts.
Users who struggle with local disk space will also find CloudMounter handy as it lets you edit files on the cloud itself without having to download them to your device. Using CloudMounter doesn’t just save hard drive space — it also reduces the drain on your device’s performance by letting you access all your cloud storage through a single storage tool instead of running programs like Google Drive and Amazon S3 open on your device at the same time.
Security is maintained by end-to-end encryption, and overall CloudMounter’s flexible feature set recommends it to anyone looking for a quality cloud storage manager.
RaiDrive is another cloud storage management app that also lets you mount cloud drives as if they were local storage. It’s compatible with major services like OneDrive, Google Drive, and Amazon Web Services, as well as less mainstream cloud solutions like Backblaze and MEGA.
Perhaps RaiDrive’s best feature is that it lets users play media files in the cloud without having to download them to their devices, so if you have a large library of media stored in the cloud then this will probably come in handy. Elsewhere you have compatibility with WebDAV, SFTP, and FTP file transfer protocols which can help with server management.
RaiDrive does possess a few notable drawbacks, however. Firstly, it’s only available for Windows, so macOS users will have to find a cloud management app elsewhere. Unfortunately, you also can’t access multiple accounts of the same storage provider at the same time, which lessens the appeal for users with heavyweight file management demands.
There are also a few technical limitations that also hold the program back, such as a lack of command-line control. RaiDrive isn’t the most lightweight app either, and file encryption leaves something to be desired. However, if you want to stream music, movies and TV shows stored in the cloud, RaiDrive might be the service for you.
